Greenhouse Gallery: Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley

Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley When Clare Carver isn't bringing the farm to table, she's vibrantly expressing it on canvas; her latest collection, Life on the Farm in Willamette Valley, is now on display at the Greenhouse Gallery at the Beard House. In a collaborative effort to produce what they love to eat and drink, Clare and her husband, Brian Marcy, run Big Table Farm, a 70-acre farm and winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
